2005 Et Fille Elton Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

126 cases, $36. Elton Vineyard is a mature vineyard planted in the 1980s and farmed by Dick and Betty O’Brien. Pommard clone. Aged for 10 months in 50% new oak. I tasted this at the winery as well as at home a couple of weeks prior. · There is plenty of structure here but the wine is not jammy. The nose opens up with wild strawberries and buttered toast. The complex flavors include dark cherries, red currents, wild berries, white pepper and tobacco. The finish is clean and satisfying with tangy acidity. Cellaring will enhance this wine further.
